LibriVox recording of 12 CREEPY TALES BY EDGAR ALLAN POE(1809 - 1849)

This is a collection of 12 creepy stories by that master of creepiness, Poe. The Black Cat; The Fall of the House of Usher, The Raven; The Tell Tale Heart, The Masque of the Red Death, the Premature Burial and six others that are a shuddering delight to read and listen to. Turn off the lights, settle down and hear these stories read to you as only LibriVox readers can perform them. (Summary by Phil Chenevert)

To librivoxbooks:
There is some degree of control that Librivox does have over the quality, especially in an instance like this. One idea that comes to my mind right off the bat is to place the very best readers of an anthology like this at the beginning. It simply isn't fair to the less talented reader AND the very talented ones that follow. I know that I wouldn't want to be sandwiched between two outstanding readers because of course I'd sound even more limited by contrast. Moreover, people will abandon listening to the audiobook before they get to the people who, probably, gave the greater effort.

To red380zzz:
Thoughtlessly giving a one star rating to a group of people with varying degrees of talent and interest in the project is way uncool.

Justification for the five star rating I'm giving this:
In my opinion, this is a solid three star effort by a group of volunteers, yet, in my opinion, red380zzz, has so unfairly skewed (sabotaged) the rating that I feel it needs to be adjusted. Here's why-- Most of the people doing the readings are clearly enjoying contributing to the project. More or less, everyone has an "average" voice. There's only one person who doesn't seem much interested in doing a good reading, and it shows.

This is a good community of volunteers effort.

Subject: different reader for each story
Tastes differ, and recording is harder than some people imagine. But did you notice that every story has been read by a different narrator? Perhaps some of the others are more to your taste.

Subject: Just plain awful!
The lady that is narrating is just plain awful! Sounds like she is a constant message at an international airport saying "the white zone is for loading only"
